Please move these two items to the old-time radio collection:

P.S. Tell Brewster that real estate in Edmonton, Alberta is about 25% the price of Vancouver or Toronto. I'll shovel your snow for you, at least once.

---------------------------------------------

A couple of Christmas episodes for y'all. These episodes already exist on other pages, although The Saint's mp3 is a bit heftier than the ones that were already here (27Mb). Both are excellent examples of their respective series.

The Dragnet episode is an emotional, sentimental, but not syrupy tale. Warning: This episode contains enough religion to seriously harm a dogmatic atheist.

The Saint episode is a bit more of a rollicking, light-hearted story of crime at Christmas. There's also a long-winded blurb about dating this episode; don't read it if you don't want to.

The Saint page also contains 'Tuning Across The Dial', a 1953 recording of someone flipping from one Philadelphia radio station to another, just a few days before Christmas.


If you feel that pages like this, for episodes that are already in the OTR collection, don't belong here, go ahead and speak up; I'm open to feedback.


Merry Christmas!

Thank you, Mr. Kaplan.

Did I mention that 96 Street, in my beloved Boyle-McCauley neighbourhood of Edmonton, made the Guinness Book Of Records for the highest concentration of churches in the world?

Some of those churches are empty now; I'd bet that some smart person could convert an empty church into a data center.
